Better Help Layoffs – Try Now

When I was first approached…Better Help Layoffs…. to potentially team up with them on a youtube series one of the things that was really essential to me as a psychologist was that I would have autonomy over what I discussed what what topics I chose to provide and likewise you know my own views when when needed or appropriate to share them and I was given that by a they essentially stated you understand we trust you as a scientific professional and

we’re gon na trust you to go out there and discuss what you understand and one of the things that I actually wished to address is the fact that I’m not simply here to say that online therapy is the answer for whatever you understand I think it can be incredibly practical for many people I’ve seen it myself dealing with people from a few months approximately over a year and I seen how having the ability to message and also have video sessions with somebody is truly a it

practically enriches the the healing experience in a manner at the same time I have a private practice where I see people in person and I completely delight in that and there are people that I see there that I wouldn’t think about seeing online either they would not be appropriate we would not be able to do the level and depth of work we’re doing or it simply wouldn’t feel comfortable and and that’s alright those two things can both be true and I believe one of the important things that I want to begin to have individuals think about exists’s a location for both online and offline treatment it is really a matter of you know choosing what’s right for you but also what’s most suitable for you with the help of a professional when I talk about certain counseling styles or methods as being appropriate for you what I imply by that is that it would be the very best technique for

the particular problem that you’re handling and I believe that a person of the issues that a lot of individuals have is that online counseling is trying to change offline counseling and I can tell you 100% that that’s not real I have actually had numerous conversations with the founder of where he has actually discussed that his audience isn’t to take on brick and mortar practices or put psychologists or certified experts out of business his objective is to offer psychological health access to the people who aren’t going to come into the treatment workplace and I 100% support that objective and I think it is essential and we have a problem with access

to psychological healthcare in this nation and is one service as our other online business I was discussing previously that there are things that I personally think that online therapy is better for or offline treatment is better suited for and I’ve in fact I’ve really discussed this in other settings due to the fact that it is something I feel quite passionate about and I have to say that my viewpoint has actually been popular by business like in terms of hopefully how they how they work with the people that provide for care so I simply wished to invest a couple of minutes talking about my own is my own personal viewpoint about the things that are most suitable for online versus offline treatment so in my view I see online treatment as a terrific place for individuals who are dealing with hard life shifts for circumstances where they’re experiencing more tension than typical for circumstances where you understand they have a really precise problem with stress and anxiety or social anxiety and a treatment like cognitive

 

behavior modification which is extremely structured can can benefit them and that treatment because it’s not as interpersonal as others is perfect for online counseling due to the fact that it involves a lot of research it involves worksheets it involves learning particular abilities and methods so mild milder disorders like mild anxiety mild depression change conditions even PTSD as long as like the individual has actually received care at first somewhere else these are all things that can be resolved through online therapy you know think of someone who has a agoraphobia and maybe they reach out to a counselor from their home since they can’t leave their house and just just to clarify agoraphobia is a condition where people are really frightened of being caught and caught in a place where they may have an anxiety attack therefore basically they start to restrict their activities and restrict their activities till much of them can’t leave their home without actually feeling substantial distress so if someone like that is at home and they can connect through their computer and connect to a therapist that’s a terrific initial step is that going to cure them absolutely not due to the fact that agoraphobia to be successfully treated requirements that individual to be able to go outside and to resume regular activities and in some cases that involves a therapist going to their home to help them with that process certainly online counselors are going to have the ability to do that but could they be the bridge that got that person who hesitates to leave their home from that initial supportive approach to therapy where they can in fact have a better life 100% and this is what the gap that intends to fill with their services my indicate this to this specific video and bringing these

things up is that I I wish to clearly interact that anything that I show you is going to be completely from where I stand as an expert psychologist and more significantly what I believe is as simply a human being on this earth attempting to do the best that I can and so I I will not tell you that something is appropriate that I don’t believe is appropriate I will not show you that online counseling is the cure-all for whatever due to the fact that I don’t think that therefore you can constantly expect to hear my sincere opinion on what I believe from my own experience and knowledge base as a licensed psychologist I hope you found this video valuable and fascinating if you did please like it below and do not hesitate to subscribe to our YouTube channel where we’re going to be producing more and more videos on a range of different psychological health topics and please reach out if there’s something specific you would like us to cover or address in an approaching video
